Eight supramolecular complexes with 2-methylquinoline and acidic components as 4-aminobenzoic acid, 2-aminobenzoic acid, salicylic acid, 5-chlorosalicylic acid, 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid, malic acid, sebacic acid, and 1,5-naphthalenedisulfonic acid were synthesized and characterized by X-ray crystallography, IR, mp, and elemental analysis. All of the complexes are organic salts except compound 2. All supramolecular architectures of 1-8 involve extensive classical hydrogen bonds as well as other noncovalent interactions. The results presented herein indicate that the strength and directionality of the classical hydrogen bonds (ionic or neutral) between acidic components and 2-methylquinoline are sufficient to bring about the formation of binary organic acid-base adducts. The role of weak and strong noncovalent interactions in the crystal packing is ascertained. These weak interactions combined, the complexes 1-8 displayed 2D-3D framework structure. © 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Source

A family of 2,9-di(3-R-1H-imidazolium-1-yl)-1,10-phenanthroline iodides and hexafluorophosphates (R = allyl, benzyl, mesityl, picolyl) were synthesized from 2,9-diiodophenanthroline and imidazole or N-substituted imidazoles. Simple reactions of these diimidazolium salts with copper powder at room temperature have afforded a series of multinuclear copper(I)-NHC complexes in good yields. The structures vary depending on the N substituents and counterions. [Cu4(L1)2(MeCN)4](PF6)4 (R = allyl) exhibits a zigzag Cu4 chain with two terminal [Cu(NHC)(MeCN)2] and two internal [Cu(phen)(NHC)] moieties. [Cu3(L2)2](PF6)3 (R = benzyl) contains a strictly linear Cu3 framework with two [Cu(NHC)2] units and a [Cu(phen)2] located at the center. Both complexes [Cu3(L4)2](PF6)3 (R = mesityl) and [Cu3(L5)2](PF6)3 (R = picolyl) consist of a triangular Cu3 core in which two copper(I) ions are surrounded by a phen and a NHC group and the third copper(I) is coordinated by two NHC groups. [Cu3(L3)2](PF6)3 derived from 2,9-di(3-benzyl-1H-benzimidazolium-1-yl)-1,10-phenanthroline hexafluorophosphate can undergo transannulation of the benzimidazolylidene ring giving [Cu2(L3′)2](PF6)2. The decomposition process might involve solvent-induced rearrangement of the ligand and hydrolysis of carbene moieties. Treatment of 2,9-di(3-mesityl-1H-benzimidazolium-1-yl)-1,10-phenanthroline iodide with copper powder generated dinuclear complex [Cu2(L4)2][Cu2(μ-I)2I2] (R = mesityl) possessing a macrocyclic cation and [Cu2(μ-I)2I2]2- anion. Tetranuclear complex [Cu4(L5)2(μ-I)2](CuI3) (R = picolyl) has been obtained from its diimidazolium iodide and copper powder. All Cu(I) complexes have been characterized by X-ray single diffraction analysis, elemental analysis, and NMR spectra. Their redox behavior and fluorescent properties have also been studied. © 2014 American Chemical Society. Source

Pd-B amorphous alloy was successfully supported on the surface of natural nanoclay palygorskite (PAL) via a simple chemical reduction method. Compared with the conventional supported Pd catalyst, the Pd-B/PAL amorphous catalyst possessed the ultra-high selectivity (100%) to o-chloroaniline (o-CAN) in the hydrogenation of o-chloronitrobenzene (o-CNB) to o-CAN and avoided the dechlorination of o-CNB. XPS analysis results indicated that PAL support could reduce the electron density of Pd atoms and suppressed the hydrogenolysis of C-Cl bond. Meanwhile, the Pd-B/PAL amorphous catalyst exhibited a good stability and is a prospective catalyst for the selective hydrogenation of CNB to CAN. © The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2016.

Six salts, ([(H2L1)(ZnCl4)] (1) (L1 = 1,1′-bis(benzimidazolyl)methane), [(H2L1)(CuCl4)]·H2O (2), [(H2L2)(ZnCl4)] (3) (L2 = 1-(3-(1H-benzimidazol-1-yl)propyl)-1H-benzimidazole), [(H2L2)(CuCl4)] (4), [(H2L3)(CuCl4)]·H2O (5) (L3 = 1- (4-(1H-benzimidazol-1-yl)butyl)-1H-benzimidazole), and [(H2L4)(ZnCl4)]·H2O (6) (L4 = 3,6-bis(imidazol-1-yl)pyridazine)), derived from bis(benzimidazole)/bis(imidazole) and metal(II) chloride dihydrate (zinc(II) chloride and copper(II) chloride dihydrate) were prepared and characterized by IR, X-ray structure analysis, elemental analysis, and TG analysis. The aromatic rings of the cations in all of the compounds are planar. X-ray diffraction analysis revealed that all the complexes have 3-D layer network structures built from hydrogen bonds between the cations and chlorometallate anions. Water molecules also play an important role in structure extension in 2, 5, and 6. The arrangements of the anions and cations in their solid state are dominated not only by size and symmetry of the cations, but also by the non-covalent interactions existing in the crystal structures. © 2014 © 2014 Taylor & Francis.
